भविष्य का बजट (जनसत्ता)

देश का आम बजट जब आता है तो उस पर सबसे ज्यादा निगाहें आम आदमी की ही होती हैं। नौकरीपेशा लोगों से लेकर छोटे-मोटे कारोबारी और कामगार तक बजट से रियायतों और लाभों की उम्मीद लगाए होते हैं। इस लिहाज से देखें तो साल 2019-20 का आम बजट आमजन के बड़े हिस्से के लिए निराश...

यों तो पिछले दो-ढाई महीने से बहुत सारे लोग अलग-अलग वजहों से अपने किसी करीबी का, तो कुछ लोग किसी काम के पूरे होने का इंतजार कर रहे थे। बहुत सारी दूसरी बातों का भी इंतजार हो रहा होगा। लेकिन इस बीच वक्त निकाल कर सबकी आंखें बार-बार आसमान की ओर इस उम्मीद से जरूर...

The maiden budget of Nirmala Sitharaman has many interesting features, but it does not have a defining central theme.

Falling far short of the goal (The Hindu)

C.P. Chandrasekhar The general election is over and a new government has been formed. But the campaign does not seem to end.

राजस्व पूर्वानुमान अवास्तविक (बिजनेस स्टैंडर्ड)

नितिन देसाई किसी बजट के वृहद-आर्थिक प्रभाव का आकलन बुनियादी रूप से इस पैमाने पर किया जाता है कि इसके कराधान और उधारी संबंधी प्रस्तावों के जरिये सरकार परिवारों और कंपनी जगत से कितनी मांग पैदा करने में सफल होती है? सरकार की तरफ से किए जाने वाले व्यय की मात्रा भी वृहद-आर्थिक सेहत के...
